This is a whopping 95 page word doc. containing all 30 of my grammar games. This represents a fair few evenings and weekends (I know - get a life!). All of these games have been tested in class and adjusted if needed - they have a real impact on learning.<br />
For each grammar skill there is:<br />
a child friendly explanation of the grammar concept; printable rules and resources for a lively dice game; suggestions to challenge or support learners; suggestions for application of the skill in written work.<br />
For some grammar games there is also a lesson plan and a presentation. <br />
Here are some of the skills covered: <br />
commands, questions and statements/ simple and compound sentences/ adverbs/ proper nouns/ classifying nouns/ contractions/ pronouns/ prepositions/prepositional phrases/ apostrophes/ adjectives/ sentence variety/ parentheses/semi-colons/ discussion/ persuasion/ complex sentences / causal connectives/ fronted adverbials/ speech/ relative clauses/ modal verbs
Appealing in design and meeting the key aims of the new Maths National Curriculum, these questions will test pupils on many aspects of upper KS2 and early KS3 learning stages, encouraging them to utilise a variety of problem solving skills and confirming their understanding of the key principles.<br />
Featuring a range of maths problems with varying difficulty levels and also suitable for foundation GCSE students, these questions are designed to be used within any classroom environment, adding fun and interest to an ordinary mathematics lesson, whilst exposing pupils easily to a variety of problem solving skills.<br />
This book contains a set of 50 write-on question worksheets. As well as the questions, worked solutions have been provided.<br />
All of the problems have been designed to be used without the need of calculators. These problem solving questions can be used in a number of ways and can also be laminated for longer-lasting use that a range of students can benefit from.
The first part of this unit uses a passage from 'Sherlock Holmes' to clarify the meaning of the terms 'inference' and 'deduction'. Student activities then focus on the language that students need to use to explain their deductions. The second part of the unit is devoted wholly to a group 'detective' activity, based on the Simon Armitage poem 'About His Person'. Finally, the unit concludes with an assessment opportunity, taking in a second Armitage poem, and a homework activity which uses learned skills to analyse a house advertisement.<br />
